Carrie Underwood Talks Performing Live Versus Recording Music 

While speaking to Rolling Stone last month, Carrie Underwood spoke about how some musicians sound differently in person versus on recordings. 

“I love to sing, and I’ve always taken pride in the work I’ve put in on my vocals. I do want to sound good,” Carrie Underwood stated. “Growing up and going to concerts or seeing my favorite artists on TV, if they didn’t sound like they were supposed to sound, it was always so deflating.”

Carrie Underwood then admitted she would end up losing respect for those who couldn’t hit high notes live. “I’d lose respect for them. Or when I’d go to a concert and hear them drop keys, I was like, ‘You can’t hit the notes! Why’d you record them if you can’t sing them?’ That stuff is important to me.”

But, Carrie Underwood said there is one singer that does impress her when it comes to performance. That would be Axl Rose. “The way I learned how to sing was I would pick really hard vocalists to try to emulate, and his voice always mesmerized me,” she continued. The Before He Cheats hitmaker went on to add, “I was like, ‘How is he doing the things that he’s doing?’”
